The NRA has blocked policies that help protect Americans from gun violence for decades –– like life-saving background checks laws –– and have stood up for policies that encourage gun violence, like Stand Your Ground. The NRA’s policy approach has cost American lives, full stop.
The NRA’s death toll is particularly clear this week, which marks one year since the country mourned the tragic shootings in Dayton and El Paso that killed 32 Americans and wounded 40 more in less than 24 hours.
In the aftermath of the El Paso and Dayton shootings, both Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell finally said they were ready to help end the scourge of gun violence. But then NRA President Wayne LaPierre reportedly ordered Trump to “stop the games” on gun safety, and they caved.
In the year since the El Paso and Dayton shootings, nearly 40,000 Americans have been killed by gun violence. Make no mistake: It’s because of the NRA that gun safety bills are dying on Mitch McConnell’s desk while Americans continue to die by gun violence in the streets.
While today’s news is a step in the right direction in holding the NRA accountable for its mismanagement and greed, there is still a lot of work to do in order to fight the culture of gun extremism the organization has created.
Text READY to 644-33 to join the movement of Americans who are fighting back against the corrupt, extremist leadership of the NRA and its dangerous policies.
